Top 20 Pattern Sale & Yarn Giveaway!


Hi, Knitters,
First, I'm so sorry that I put the wrong link to the Barrett Wool Co. Wisconsin Woolen Spun yarn in the last email that went out. It is fixed now on the blog post. Thank you for letting me know. I had answered a question for someone looking for the Juniper Moon wooden cut-outs earlier and it was still copied instead of the yarn link.

There are still a few skeins left in the Wisconsin Woolen Spun Sport Weight in the Harbor and Apple Blossom colorways if you are interested. The rest has sold out. We have a lot more of the local yarn coming, in fact, we are listing another order of the Worsted Weight later today. Remember that these are small batch yarn orders so they are listed and then they go fast. The best way to find out when things are listed, the first notification, is to sign up for the Barrett Wool Co. Newsletter. The box to enter your email to sign up is at the bottom of every page.

The correct link to the Wisconsin Woolen Spun Sport Weight is here!  Apple Blossom and Harbor are still in stock.

Okay, now for today's fun! I thought it would be fun to brighten things up around here in a couple of ways. I started thinking about some sort of pattern sale and was looking at the patterns in my Ravelry pattern shop. I sorted the patterns by most favorited. That was really interesting for me. Things popped up that were really new and things popped up that were really old! I loved looking through the sorted patterns. There were hats, toys, mittens, cowl, shawls, ornaments, ebooks.... a really good mix and variety in the top 20. It was fun to go back and remember all of these good designs from just yesterday and years ago.

Anyway, I decided to do a Top 20 Pattern Sale for 20% off of each of these 20 patterns. The sale is starting today, Saturday, January 28th and ending next Saturday, February, 4th, 2017! A full week of discounted patterns. 

To get 20% off the following patterns enter the code: TOP20 when you are checking out!

Here is the quick linked list of patterns included in the 20% discount sale using the code TOP20:
10.  Ebb Cowl
20.  Owl Babies

I have linked the patterns for you in the list above and also under each photo in the post. Thank you so much if you partake! I really appreciate it. 

There is a giveaway at the end of the post if you are interested!

And for the yarn giveaway I have this beautiful sock yarn by Knit Style Yarns! Sharon, a lovely teacher who is retiring at the end of the year, and the dyer behind Knit Style yarns and podcast has been one of my students at Vogue Knitting Live in NYC two times and I just love her! She gifted me this beautiful skein of her Chic Sock in the Fallen Faerie colorway a few weeks ago and I decided to share it with one of you! The yarn has 400 yards of Superwash Merino 80% and Nylon 20%. It is speckled and beautiful, perfect for socks or a shawl or mittens or anything else!



Leave one comment right here on the blog post to enter to win the Fallen Faerie skein of sock yarn! You must leave your email address or Ravelry username so I can get in touch. Only click on the Publish button once, there will be a delay before you see your comment on the blog. I'll randomly pick a winner in a few days and get in touch if you win to gather your mailing address. 

Don't forget, TOP20 is the discount code for the patterns available for one week. 

Thanks for the continuing fun and support around here, Knitters! You all make my day.

For the holidays, I knit up a bunch of stockings using the afterthought heel. I'd like to try this yarn out on a pair of actual socks using that method. I kept hearing how great the afterthought heel was, but I had no idea HOW great is actually is!

Your designs are so fun. I have loved the couple I have made so far and look forward to making more in the future. (PS: If anyone has any hesitations about the Smooth Operator socks, I can personally vouch that this pattern is amazing and easy to follow, and that the socks come out perfectly!) :)

love your blog/newsletter stuffs, been following your sock tips as my 1st 3 attempts failed once I got to the gusset area...finding sock patterns very confusing to follow...have no one near me to help except paid LYS classes which are very hard since I am mobility challenged and have various health issues to deal with, which make it near impossible to take a class. Finding your data for socks very helpful, you take the stress out of it for sure.
